DomEX in conjunction with The Art School are delighted to present a multi disciplinary night of live, inventive, exploratory electronics that will seamlessly channel the fearless and unorthodox applications of contemporary production methods. Immersing you're mind into an ambiguous, lucid, hallucinatory illusion beyond the comprehension of reality.
Our special guest for the evening is Lolina aka Inga Copeland. The Russian-born artist was previously one half of the elusive avant dub / pop duo Hype Williams. Along with Dean Blunt the project operated between 2005 & 2013, releasing several LP’s, 7’s & mixtapes on labels such as Hyperdub, De Stijl and Carnivals.
In 2011 Copeland turned solo and dropped her first EP on Rush Hour’s ‘No Label’, with which she further warped the classic hazy, kush-soaked melodies of Hype Williams whilst adding more intricate garage / 2 step style drum patterns. Since then Inga has released several more EP’s, an album and the seminal ‘Live in Paris’ record under her new alias Lolina which saw her continue to forge her own path through subtle, ominous shades of bass, silhouettes of dub, disjointed grime templates, melancholic gothic introversions and inna-bedroom style pop music.
The show will coincide just in time with Lolina's latest musical presentation entitled 'Lolita' which is self released. It is available now on her bandcamp as a digital with a forthcoming 10" coming in November. We've all been rinsing the samples of the release on the Low Company's website as of late. Absolutely intoxciated by the peculiar and ridiculously oddball experimental grime arrangements on it.
Rudi Brito's ~ who is also one half of the mysterious and wonderfully abstract Yong Yong ~ music is a hyper normalized vortex of idiosyncratic drum syncopations, bizarre luscious psychedelia and a surrealistic hypnagogic approach to footwork, tekno, hip hop, enchanting field recordings and new age ambience. Brito's productions deconstruct and rebuild from the beginning experimenting with radically unhinged tempos, maximalist rhythms and vibrational excursions. An absorbing departure from linear and restrictive structures to creating music that unflinchingly pushes the boundaries of sonic parameters to new and invigorating luminous holographic paradigms that have not yet been conceived… until now.
Sue Zuki’s inaugural recorded document the ''WE ARE ALL VERY ANXIOUS'' tape is in our opinion one of the most innovative audio expeditions that has resonated with us. Boldly defying and deconstructing conventional genre tropes.
The key to Sue Zuki’s music is her vocals where she misanthropically preaches the records themes of psychological alienation and despair, trapped within an augmented virtual reality.
A combination of fragmented and jarring rhythmic grime percussive kick drums that is boosted by the heavy coiling density of detached, propulsive industrial structures. Synthetic frequencies writhe, becoming more lysergic as they progress. DnB tempos accelerate and shift in pitch as if in an erratic state of panic, dissonant foreboding drones absorb you as if drowning under the hypothermic pressure of the deepest, coldest and darkest frozen oceans. Throbbing sub bass fuelled with dread and agonising noise grips you into a suffocating claustrophobia, compressing further and further.
Accompanied also by subdued, fragile and sunken RnB / Rhythm and Gloom vocals with desolate acoustic guitar fusions which overall provides an empathetic tone.
A relatively new producer to recently emerge this will be one of Nova Scotia aka Shaheeda Sinckler’s earliest live performances. TUFF, formidable hybrid of bashment / grime / dancehall dutty RIDDIMs coalesce with strange extraterrestrial high pass filters, phasers and effects. Our brainwaves are on high alert. It is also worth noting that Nova Scotia is also one third of the curators and creative practitioners for the Where People Sleep collective. A progressive DIY gallery and music events space which might be of particular interest to many of you. We highly recommend you spend some time checking out.
